What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 351

It's been Half Term around here and my girl has only gone back to college today. The kitchen table has been her domain.

This morning, I came down to this at 6am.....

























Went out into this.....

























Came home and made this.....

























I like the splashy background on my biplane cards so much, I had to use it again.

Now it's coffee time and a chance to visit Julia and the Deskers on this gloriously sunny day.

I didn't know you had such an arty daughter! Great creations and lovely card too! -3C Brrrr! It's the pay off for these brilliant blue skies during the day! If it wasn't so cold, it would definitely feel like spring! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #38

Love the saxa salt pot! Well done to your daughter - did she do that last thing at night or first thing in the morning? Either way - impressive. Your card is great - I agree - I love that background, too.
The mornings certainly are cold at the moment - but I confess NOT to being out in them at that time!! But guess what I saw the other day? Cold or not, wet or not; in my garden, in the same border - in fact, right next to each other - were a Welsh poppy and a snowdrop. Yes, both in flower at the same time!!! Crazy or what?? I didn't get out quickly enough with my camera before the wind had blown the petals off the poppy - but today I have noticed another Welsh poppy out in the back garden!
Take care. God bless.

Great water-colours -I love the salt pot - what an arty daughter you have! That's all a bit early for me, I don't think I'd be with it enough to handle a camera at that time of the morning, it takes me a while to 'come round'! Thanks for the visit, hope you have a good week,

HI Fiona, love your daughters artwork. It seems to have been fairly frosty all round, as Doug said it was very frosty when he came home this morning. I like that background too, it really works so well, doesn't it. Provides enough colour without being overpowering. Had some fun finally making use of the Woodgrain stamp. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #12 xx

Creativity is abounding in your home. Your daughter's skill & talent is wonderful. I like your very cheerful balloon card. It is/will be a crafty day for me as the weather is wicked & the authorities are asking people not to go out unless they absolutely have to - so doing my part, I am hope with my scrapping stash pulled out ...

Annie said...

I'm just in from my afternoon school run and having done the morning school run and a full day of sewing in between I'm feeling rather jaded but as you can imagine those little ones never fail to put a smile on my face so it's all worth it.
Thanks for dropping by at mine earlier.
It looks like your daughter is following in your footsteps :-)
Hugs,

Your daughter is very talented...I wonder where she gets that from??xx

KraftyKaren said...

Lovely work from your daughter and love your balloon card too - the gorgeous grunge set is just so versatile, I'm looking forward to taking delivery of GG Part 2 next week :D

Julia Dunnit said...

It was a lovely day wasn't it. I was moved to wash the car so that I could be productive and out in the sun! I love your daughters style, do you know Tracey Fletcher King from early WOYWW days? She makes a living as an artist of everyday things, worth lovely girl taking a look, I think. I do like the apology background, so useable....I have two old ones by I can't remember who...they are still amongst my 'go to' stamps!

Cheri said...

Great way to document both the everyday messy moments and the beauty that exist side by side!

Kyla said...

Like the way you documented your day, short and snappy....I could learn from that :-)
Thanks for visiting my desk already
